  1. Suspended Under Fourteen

    I have to say that children do need a safe place to turn however there are so many adult topics discussed here that it feels almost abusive to expose children to these things and to bog them down with even more adult issues than they are already facing. To be quite honest it freaks me out that there are people here under the age of 16 and even 18 that we adult survivors expose to all of our stuff. I am desperately want to teach highschool and I just finished interning with 9th-11th grade and they are still kids no matter what they have experienced. Now that I have stated my opinion the fact is when I joined this forum I knew it was intergenerational so by joining and posting my stuff I know that I am exposing children to my issues but being part of this community is so important to me and I have to say that I filter myself quite a bit because I wonder never want to expose a child to some of the adult things I am working on. Ever since I had a bad experience in the chatroom with someone that was underage shouldering the burden of a "suicidal" member in the middle of the night I have come to see that we must provide hope, courage, and a shoulder without exposing child members to other things that as children they shouldn't have to worry about. It really makes me sad to think about the 14 year old that felt responsible for keeping a 19 year old alive. She never should have been put in that position. Tat situation was resolved but I will never ever forget it and it helped mold my views of AS as a safe haven for a community of intergenerational survivors............Michelle
